Now I'm Living & Looking Younger Longer

One day in 1988, my boss found me sitting at my desk staring off into space with tears streaming down my face. All I could remember saying was, "I just can't take the pain any longer." Have you ever been in physical pain 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for over 6 years? Added to this constant pain was the fact that although I had been in administration and management for many years, a Corporate Meeting Planner for a large company taking as many as 2,000 people on international and domestic conferences::having the mental capability to remember ALL the details - - I now was also dealing with panic attacks from not being able to remember why I had gone to the store. Chronic fatigue and insomnia had also become my constant companions.

My boss was a physician, so he immediately scheduled me for tests: MRI, blood tests, nerve tests, tests, tests and more tests. The conclusion - - I had Fibromyalgia. What in the world is Fibromyalgia? It is a disease related to Chronic Fatigue and Epstein-Barr that doctors do not know where it comes from. It attacks the muscles, tissues and tendons and causes one to feel as if they had severe arthritis, memory loss, fatigue and depression. Oh yes . . . and the doctors don't know how to get rid of it!

By December of 1994, I was taking prescription pain drugs (2-4 daily), 1600 mg. of Advil DAILY, and a prescription drug that was supposed to help me sleep. HA! HA! I was still in 24-hour-a-day pain, still not sleeping and still chronically fatigued. Oh yes, and now with all the medications, I had gone from a size 10-12 to a size 18-20 and my cholesterol was over 400. Depressing for a woman turning 50!

I remember talking to my husband about how my parents were 88 years old and still alive, and how all of my grandparents had lived to a ripe old age:: and now here I was facing 40-50 more years IN PAIN? I saw a friend I hadn't seen for a few months and in just that short time, she had dropped a lot of weight and looked fabulous. She shared with me about some products from a company called Youngevity. She told me how great she felt, how she had lost weight and, "would I like to try it?"

Not wanting to fail and have a more defeated mentality, I started on the FM 2001 "secretly". I told her I didn't need the Anti-Oxidants because I was taking my "One-A-Day" with 26 essential minerals. I didn't tell my husband or the friend with whom I worked the closest. In about 4-6 weeks I had dropped a dress size and had gained a lot of energy. Both my husband and my friend asked me, "What are you doing?" You are doing something different." So I shared my "secret" with them.

By March, I lost another dress size and began to add all the other Yougevity products, since I had run out of my "One-A-Day" that hadn't been working anyway. I also added SUPER CELL PROTECTOR when it came out. To my amazement, the pain in my joints and muscles began to leave. By May, I was not taking any Advil and only 1 to 2 pain pills a day. I even asked my doctor about cutting out the prescription drug I was on. By June, I had lost yet another dress size and it dawned on me that my memory for detail had returned!

Today, I am off all the prescription drugs and deal with only minor pain occasionally. I only take Youngevity products! I don't get fatigued and am still working 16 to 18 hour days . . . ONLY now I work in MY OWN BUSINESS through YOUNGEVITY. Now I am able to share these wonderful products with so many people.

Today I not only feel YOUNGER I LOOK YOUNGER ALSO!
